The proposed development is located in the Lammermuir Hills, adjacent to the south of the existing Crystal Rig Wind Farm. All of the proposed turbines are situated within the Scottish Borders Council jurisdiction and access to the Proposed Development will utilise the existing access through the north, which is in East Lothian Council’s area. The existing infrastructure and access tracks will be utilised as far as possible.
The grid connection will be made at the existing substation on the site of Crystal Rig Wind Farm. It connects to the overhead 400 kV power line that travels through the Crystal Rig Wind Farm. It is the transmission line that provides the grid connection for the existing Crystal Rig Wind Farm and has available capacity secured for the proposed development.
